STAVROPOL, January 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s grain export reached 19.5 million tonnes as of January 25, 2012, Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov told a conference on Wednesday.
While addressing participants in the conference devoted to the agricultural development in the North Caucasus Federal District, he stated, “Russia returned to the list of the leading grain exporters. Up to date, the country’s grain export made up 19.5 million tonnes.”
“We have never achieved such a result by the end of January,” Zubkov said.
Touching upon the results of 2011, the first deputy prime minister reaffirmed that the agricultural companies managed to keep their financial stability and guarantee more than 20-percent growth of output.
In 2011, Russia exported about 20,000 tonnes of poultry, he said. “This year, we can deliver abroad up to 200,000 tonnes of poultry and about 400,000 tonnes of poultry in 2015,” Zubkov said.
In his words, the regions of the North Caucasus achieved results in the agricultural sector, some of which are bigger that Russia’s average ones. For instance, their animal and chicken production in life weight went up by 7.3 percent in 2011, while Russia’s average indicator amounted to 3.7 percent, Zubkov said.
